Trunk or Treat Theme Ideas
It's not just the house that needs a spookover for fright night, you can deck your car out too. The trunk-or-treat event is typically carried out in the parking lots of schools and other community centers instead of kids having to go door to door.
Supplies can be purchased from craft or dollar stores, and you can get creative with your theme.
Whatever theme you choose, make sure to have plenty of goodies for trick-or-treaters to enjoy. Take inspiration from these ideas.
Pirate Trunk or Treat
To make the shark fins use cardboard cutouts; try using something on the bottom so that they stay up, or you can make the bases more spread out. You can always take a cup and make it paper mache style.
I suggest putting something as the base, such as cardboard, so that you get the shape right and it'll withstand getting hit in different directions.
Take inspiration from one of Halloween's most cherished movies like, It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. You can purchase a roll of artificial grass and mix real pumpkins with cutouts of pumpkins and, of course, characters from Charlie Brown.
Nightmare Before Christmas
The Nightmare Before Christmas is a hugely popular theme for Halloween events. You can decorate a mini Christmas tree as part of your decor. A white pumpkin is painted with Jack Skellington to complete the look.
Make the Candy Land sign with cardboard, and for the lollipops, use pool noodles and hot glue and a PVC tube for the stick.
To get them to stand up, put a hole in the bottom of a flower pot the same size as the PVC pole, turn the pot upside down and then pop a bucket of sand underneath to stick the pole in.
